Kingborough District

Kingborough District is part of the Southern Region and covers the most southern suburbs of metropolitan Hobart, together with a number of towns scattered along the D'entrecasteaux Channel further south.

The badge depicts an apple and a scallop, as these were the two major industries of the district for many years.

Sadly, there are fewer apple trees today. Although there are no longer enough mature scallops to support commercial fishing in the district, amateur scallop fishing continues. Several fish processing plants have been established in the district in more recent years.
